TBBMC correlated with urinary zinc concentration in the women with postmenopausal osteoporosis (simple linear regression: r = 0.
We observed a negative correlation between TBBMC and urinary zinc excretion in the patient group, so the role of bone zinc depletion in structural bone weakness is worthy of further study.
These observations suggest that the increased urinary zinc excretion with normal plasma zinc levels observed by us was due to mobilization of bone zinc resulting from increased bone resorption, as suggested by the correlations found between zinc and both TRAP and TBBMC.
